There has not been any expectation of a reasonably honest election since computers were introduced into the voting process. There will never be again. I am quite fond of the beasts, own many, and spend my days and nights working with them.
But there is no way to keep a computer from being hacked. Methods have become so sophisticated that a computer which has never been connected to a communication line, has never been subject to sneaker net, had no wifi or other rf contact with another computer, except for an initial load of required software, can still be hacked. Through the air you say -- yes, through the air. And there is not just one technique to accomplish this, but several. Do a search on "air gap hack" if you don't believe me.
As much as I despise Obama, Hillary and most other presidents and wannabes, in 19th and 20th Century. A thing like Trump is not the answer to our tremendously serious problems. He will exacerbate them severely, unless of course he obliterates the surface of the earth.
I fee sorry for you. Your perceptions are so unalterably mono-thematic that your internal existence can no broader than Angrstom units. It appears to be incapable of enrichment of any sort lest it shred into its component pieces.
Hillary is dusgusting. Trump is disgusting. Your existence just teetered on the edge of a knifeblade to see which way you would fall.
We know that Snowden is reputed to have committed espionage. Since it is under seal, who knows what really happened? People are taking sides on an issue they know nothing about. Merely wild claims.
Wouldn't be the first time that the government has knowingly violated its own laws in selecting a victim for harassment, destruction of career, false imprisonment, and assistance in committing "suicide."
Or have you all forgotten wars for personal gain, Ruby Ridge, Waco, and innumerable other instances?
Mr. Trump has no right to bully the members of this nation. As president-elect, and president to be, he must maintain equanimity in discourse. A trait he has yet to exhibit. A fairness to all -- a concept where I find little understanding on his part.
He is not 6 years old, but reputedly an adult. The presidency is not a kingship in which petty spites are to be indulged at whim.
The man has two months to grow up, but I don't think he will make it.
He may have a certain amount of immunity during his presidency, but should he live through that period it is unlikely he will spend a day out of court.
"Truth" comes out of Trumps belly like gas. An eruption signifying nothing but an desired increase in heat in the room. The only problem for the true observer, is quantifying the nature of the explosion. Is it random, or rather chaotic?
The NYT may have the right to lie and hide facts. Just like Fox and myriad others. But the warmongering that went on between the NYT and the Iraqi's, buying the adminstration's Iraqi lies. The NYT's willingness to hide Bush's use of torture and mass surveillance for a year because it might affect the 2004 election (especially after Comey). And other atrocities should forever bar the NYT from rising above green alien invasion stories in the subtabloids.
No American deserves a politician. Their clothes and assets should be stripped from them on entry into a political house, and not returned until the term is over. No more, no less, than when they entered.
